    Thanks for the advice, guys.

    Yeah, Udis is about the only non-disgusting tasting gluten free bread I have found. So I buy that. I ask about flour mainly for baked goods, and I have some success with rice flour for desserts (coconut flour too, but I usually mix in some rice flour). Glad to hear rice is okay. It's not as though I have a slice of cake every day
    Stumbled into Primal due to food allergies, and subsequent elimination of non-primal foods.

    Start Gluten-Free/Soy-Free: December 2012; start weight 158lbs, Ladies size 6
    Start Primal: March 2013, start weight 150lbs, Ladies size 6
    Current: 132lbs, Ladies size 2
    F/23/5'9"

    26lbs lost since cutting the crap.

      As far as dessert-type baked goods are concerned, I normally keep a blend of 4 parts white rice flour:1 part sweet rice flour. I usually sub it. I don't use xanthan gum, so sometimes the result is more crumbly than it would be. But better than inconvenient digestive issues the additive gives me.

        Thank you.

          No its not a crime to want a decadent dessert once in a while. Indulge! But make it the best damn dessert possible, not some dessert substitute. A paleo cupcake is still a cupcake, except its not the cupcake my taste buds are looking for. And just because the ingredients are "all paleo" doesn't make it an everyday food.
